A small estate of 7 hectares run by Sylvie Esmonin, one of a handful of leading female producers in the Cote d'Or. The estate comprises 5 hectares in Gevrey-Chambertin, with a sizeable plot of the Premier Cru Clos St-Jacques, which her grandfather bought from the original owner, the Comte de Moucheron. No herbicides have been used since 1990 and the domaine is farmed more or less organically, though not systematically so.
Domaine Sylvie Esmonin Gevrey-Chambertin ‘Vieilles Vignes’ 2017
From 65+ year old vines, slightly more restrained and sturdier than the village wine, concentrated with intense black fruits and earthy notes, a robust wine with a broad mid-palate. Great ageing potential here.
Drinking from 2021.
